Naniwa Sharpening stone question

Wed Nov 13, 2013 5:41 am

Why is there such a price difference between Naniwa Super Stones and Naniwa Chosera Stones?
Is there any final result difference between sharpening on Super vs. Chosera?
How does longevity compare between the two?

Longevity wise, the Chocera stones would just have to last longer. The Superstones are just so soft that do wear rather quickly. Final results, personal opinion I guess. I like the 10k Superstone amongst all the high grit stones I've tried including the Chocer

The chosera stones are a much better stone than the super stones IMO. The chosera stones are much harder and cut very fast without loading which can be a issue with the super stones.

They are said to be more expensive because they contain more abrasive and the process they go through to be made is more labor intensive.

I personally didn't care for them a few months ago but after getting a chance to get some good use in I found the chosera stones to be very good. A very consistent stone that flows from grit to grit without issue.

If you decide to get some chosera stones I highly recommend the 3k, probably my favorite stone from the line.

I would consider the only one worth owning to be the 10k super stone. There are so much cheaper and beter stones, the bestor and Beston for example
